Golden Friend

Welcome!  Today's card comes with a video and was made using the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch, the colors at Color Throwdown and the Anything Goes challenge at 4 Crazy Chicks.

I blended some SSS inks onto a panel of Bristol Smooth cardstock adding the darker color (Merlot) to the bottom and the lighter color (Schoolhouse Red) to the top.  Once it was dry, I gold-embossed the Kaleidoscope background stamp from SSS onto the panel before die-cutting it with a rounded rectangle die.  

The sentiment was die-cut three times from After Midnight cardstock by MFT and stacked together, before being spritzed with Clear Shimmer Spray.  You can see in the photo below the subtle shimmer.

Finally, I added some sparkling crystal from Studio Katia.

Thanks so much for visiting.  To view the video, you can either head over to YouTube or watch below.
